A multicloud strategy brings the capability to distribute workloads between various computing infrastructures. This approach means competitive advantages for organizations across industries, including cost savings, reduced barriers to innovation, stronger disaster mitigation, and business continuity planning.
According to a Gartner survey, approximately 81% of respondents confirmed adopting a multicloud strategy to leverage advanced capabilities across clouds. Oracle Cloud offers a comprehensive set of multicloud solutions in the form of specialized deployments, database services, extensive monitoring capabilities, and strategic partnerships to fit your organization's needs.

Using Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure Interconnect allows customers to migrate to the cloud or to build new applications that leverage the best of OCI and Azure. Customers can quickly migrate on-premises applications, leverage a broader range of tools, and integrate as a single, unified enterprise cloud solution.
Customers are also able to move interdependent enterprise applications to the cloud, deploy custom and packaged applications across OCI and Azure, and develop cloud native applications in both cloud environments. Most importantly, customers can migrate on-premises applications to the cloud while preserving application architectures, optimizations, and interoperability.
Oracle FastConnect joins customers directly to their OCI virtual cloud network via dedicated, private, high-bandwidth connections. Based on their data volume, customers simply choose an appropriate port speed and pay a consistent low price for that each month. Other providers charge by amount of data moved, which can be expensive and unpredictable.
FastConnect extends customers’ on-premises environment to OCI with an Oracle partner, a colocation space, or a third-party provider. With more than fifty FastConnect partners—such as AT&T Business, BT, and Verizon—customers have guaranteed responsive global access for their cloud-based workloads.
Oracle SD-WAN provides secure, reliable connectivity to OCI with optimal bandwidth across inexpensive commodity network connections. Access to applications running on Oracle Cloud may be from any internet, including Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) or FastConnect. Oracle SD-WAN eliminates a single point of failure and aggregates multiple links to provide the best possible capacity to Oracle Cloud. With Oracle SD-WAN, enterprises can benefit from internet economics, leverage high-bandwidth and inexpensive internet connections, and safely migrate applications at their own pace to Oracle Cloud.
With Oracle SD-WAN Orchestration Cloud Service, customers can manage edge devices essential to any public cloud, including OCI, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Microsoft Azure. Operating SD-WAN on OCI ensures customers can securely access the service from any location and reduces the time and onsite technical skills required.
